8th November – Flossie Malavialle

Flossie Malavialle is the guest at Irvine Folk Club on Wednesday 8th November. From Nimes in France and resident in the North East of England since 2002, Flossie has appeared at the Irvine Club a number of times.

Eclectic best describes Flossie’s repertoire. She does cover versions of a wide range of material. The Irvine audience can expect to hear her take on songs from Sinatra to Abba, from Errol Garner to Paul McCartney and a whole load of stuff in between. In short, there is usually something to please everyone! Flossie has a clear and strong voice, accompanies herself on acoustic guitar and makes much of her Franglais.

With her commanding stage presence and a repertoire, for the most part, of well-known songs, Flossie works hard on her chosen career and has a busy Gig list. She now has 12 albums to her name. As well as her solo gigs, Flossie is one half of the Dark Horses duo – the other half being guitarist Keith Donnelly.

Hear Flossie Malavialle at Irvine Folk Club on Wednesday 8th November at Irvine Folk Club in Vineburgh Community Centre. The Club starts at 8pm and it’s BYOB.

Continuing with its 50th anniversary celebrations, on Saturday 11th November Irvine Folk Club presents Far, Far From Ypres in The Volunteer Rooms.
